Australia to Legalize Medical Cannabis This Year
While tight regulations and governmental interference will be in place, Australia are set to legalize medical cannabis by the end of 2016.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that while legalization will be finalized and the industry will be able to commence this year, it will be “some time” before patients will be able to receive cannabis for medicinal purposes.
This incredible news was finalised after the Therapeutic Goods Administration gave their approval for legalization, the last hurdle in a tiresome legislative marathon.
Australian lawmakers had already given the plans the go ahead, after they revised the country’s Narcotic Drugs Act, allowing legally cultivated cannabis for medicinal purposes in Australia.
